Thanks for reminding us!! I need to check my calendar, but want to go(not sure if I would have time to meet before). Do you think this is okay to post at my preschool? Is it too small a venue for that. I do not think many would attend, but perhaps the faculty would send someone. Thank you again. Becca

We are very lucky to be having him speak to our preschool in November. I've heard him speak before and he is wonderful!

Do you happen to know the topic of Dr. Young's presentation on Tuesday? My wife and I have seen him present before...he is fantastic.

The NSFN will probably have the exact wording of the topic, be sure to ask when you to register. I do know that it will have a large emphasis on peanut allergy. The last time I saw him speak, he talked about 45 minutes and then just took questions. I also know that a LARGE number of school nurses and teachers will be attending. I hope that helps.

Heather2, do you know how it so came to be that he will speak at your preschool? Is that an open lecture? It might be a bit closer to me, but really, I am conisering contacting him to speak in our area or at our preschool. We are West, and quite a drive from the northern suburbs. It is our first year with any peanut allergies and they ended up with 3, not just my dd. They are trying so hard, but I think in need of more education. becca

I worked for Dr.young in my younger days ( and I have a peanut allergic daughter now!) Dr. young is a great speaker and such an intelligent man... I am sure he will focus a big part of his talk on peanut allergy.

Becca...I just sent him an e-mail and asked him to speak and he said yes. You are most welcome to attend the lecture if you like. It is in Woburn, is that close to you?

We can get more specific offboard about locations and dates. If I do not hear from you in time, I will attend the Melrose one. Thank you, Becca

Melrose Mum,
Would you please take notes and post what you learn from tomorrow night? I'm so jealous! It seems no one ever comes to the West Coast!
